By Brian Feekin
Nebraska Scouting Director

This Sunday marks the 15th annual Super 60 showcase hosted by Prep Baseball Report. The event has become the most heavily scouted preseason event for potential draft picks in the Midwest. The primary purpose of the Super 60 is to give professional area scouts and crosscheckers a head start on the high school season.

Nebraska Super 60 History

With the launch of Prep Baseball Report in Nebraska, Nebraska has only seen one participant with Mitchell Hagan of Omaha Westside in 2016.

Comments from Event

Hagan is a 6-foot-3, 215-pound switch-hitting 2-way player. At the Super 60 event; Hagan ran a 7.64 60-yard dash. Slightly open stance on both sides of the plate. Upright athletic set-up. Clean pat path through zone with gap to gap approach. Shows equal power from both sides of plate with ability to make consistent hard contact. Exit velocity off tee of 90 mph. Shows solid actions in outfield. Projects as a corner OF/1B defensively. Angles are appropriate and shows good glove. Long 1-piece arm action. Solid/avg. carry to target. Would benefit from greater extension out front on release. 88 mph arm strength. On the mound utilizes a slight tuck and turn delivery. Over-the-top slot with some head jerk on release and falls off to third base side. Uses strong frame to drive fastball downhill at 84-87 mph. Throws above average curveball at 76-78 mph with 12/6 rotation and tight spin. Changeup was firm with split-action at 82-83 mph. Overall shows strong frame, ability to hit from both sides of plate, has options as a corner outfielder/first baseman; and should be able to eat up innings at the college level.
